Lilly Broadcasting makes One Caribbean Television available as an Over-The-Top (OTT) signal to Puerto Rico

NEWS PROVIDED BY Lilly Broadcasting

ERIE, Pa., Oct. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Puerto Rico’s power grid and communication infrastructure has been decimated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Most of Puerto Rico has been without power for almost a month. Puerto Rico residents have had limited access to news, weather, or any information for over a month. Liberty Cablevision of Puerto Rico, is building an emergency Wi-Fi Hot spot network for individuals and local small businesses, so they can communicate with loved ones, to work, or study. Although electricity is limited, people can still use their phones and other personal devices.

Lilly Broadcasting felt that during this time of need, anything they could do to help provide news and weather information to the residents of Puerto Rico, to keep them informed and safe is a priority. If we also provide entertainment to Puerto Rico, hopefully this could provide an escape and a time to heal for the all the residents.

Lilly Broadcasting distributes One Caribbean Television in Puerto Rico, the USVI, throughout the Caribbean and North America. One Caribbean Television offers local news, weather, syndicated programming, and hyper local Caribbean content.

Emergence of mosquitoes expected in the Cayman Islands following heavy rains

The Mosquito Research and Control Unit (MRCU) is expecting a significant emergence of mosquitoes during the next few days due to the recent heavy rains.

The increased rainfall results in a higher number of mosquitoes hatching during this period, compared to dryer conditions.

The wet and stormy weather has also been hampering MRCU’s control efforts, as neither ground, nor aerial operations can be conducted in extreme wet or windy conditions.

As soon as weather conditions permit, MRCU will respond to the expected mosquito emergence.

 

Cayman Islands Police Offer Burglary Prevention Reminder

From RCIPS

Following reports of two burglaries overnight in the Rum Point Drive area, where culprits gained entry through unlocked doors, police are reminding members of the public to ensure their doors and windows are securely locked, especially in the evening.

“Securing points of entry is one of the most straightforward things that can be done to deter burglars,” said Inspector Courtney Myles of the Neighbourhood Policing Department. “In light of these two burglaries we will be stepping up our patrols in these areas and we ask the community to work with us and report any suspicious activity. We remain committed to ensuring the safety of all persons living in our community and their properties.”

Anyone who is interested in a crime prevention review of their property should contact their local police station for the neighbourhood police officer in their area.

 

RCIPS FCU Warns of Fraudulent Solicitations from Fake Facebook Profiles of Public Figures, 26 October

The RCIPS FCU is advising the public of a report received yesterday, Wednesday 25 October, that a fake Facebook profile purporting to be the profile of Hon. Tara Rivers, MLA, has been soliciting money from those following the Facebook page.

The RCIPS FCU is investigating the report, and is taking this opportunity to raise awareness among the public of the use of fake Facebook profiles for fraudulent solicitations. Detectives are asking the public to be wary of any solicitations for financial details or donations via Facebook. These should be handled very carefully and authenticated, especially when received from Facebook pages that appear to be the profile of a public figure.

Any suspicious instances can be reported to the RCIPS Financial Crime Unit at 949-8797 or via email at [email protected].
